PERTH (miningweekly.com) – ASX-listed Talga’s environmental permit for its Vittangi battery anode plant in Sweden is now in force, after the permit appeal application closed on July 12, with no appeals submitted.

The company on Monday said that it had now been issued with a Certificate of Finality to confirm the environmental permit was in force.

Vittangi will use 100% renewable electricity to produce an initial 19 500 t/y of green anode for lithium-ion batteries from an integrated mine and anode refinery operation in northern Sweden, over an initial mine life of 24 years.

Talga is targeting the start of construction groundworks this quarter. Early works, including anode equipment procurement and early detailed engineering, are underway.
